a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, or combination
The ALCHEMY Project transforms one art form into another through commissioning, performing, and recording flute & guitar repertoire inspired by artistic works from non-music disciplines—such as paintings and poetry— significant to the composers involved.
Funded by a project grant from the Regional Arts & Culture Council, ALCHEMY features new works for flute and guitar that the Cerulean Duo is commissioning from:
Latin GRAMMY nominee CLARICE ASSAD, Brazilian-American vocalist, pianist, arranger and contemporary composer
Composer, 7-string electric guitarist, and Portland Oregon native JAY DERDERIAN
MICHAEL JOHANSON, Lewis & Clark College’s Department Chair and Associate Professor of Music, Director of Composition and Music Theory
And our very own guitarist, composer, and arranger, MARIO DÍAZ
